Garbage.
The game is buggy as hell.
No word from the developers as to how to fix this game.
Asked for a refund, they basically said tough ♥♥♥♥.

Extremely poor quality for the extortionate price.

No one, and I mean NO ONE buy this game.

I actually DO recommend this game. I've been playing since 2010. It's enormous fun, especially if you're into politics. Sadly it also plays so very badly on anything that isn't a good gaming PC - even though it's now five years old. In a nutshell, the company that made this game had a fantastic idea but apparently outsourced the coding to a team of below-average intelligence monkeys. It is a MASSIVE drain on resources despite being an almost completely menu-based game; many of the bugs people report aren't bugs at all, but serious memory problems that hit lower-end machines. I have a brand new gaming PC that runs this thing like a charm - it can get through a term (4 -5 years) of gameplay in an hour, rarely crashes and handles reasonably smoothly. My older PC, which was good at the time this was released, takes an hour to get through one year, crashes completely at random (anywhere from 12 times in 20 minutes to once in 2 hours) due to memory problems and is unbearably laggy. Furthermore, the game is still incredibly buggy - EverSim opted to release new editions of the game rather than seriously fix old ones, with each new installment being more messed up than the last.

Having said all of that, the game is still enormously fun, and has improved from launch in 2010. Most countries are now realistically playable. If you're really enthusiastic about politics, this game can be very enjoyable - it has much more depth to it than any other geopolitical sim, and the emphasis here really is on managing a country's domestic politics and economy. It has some bizarre quirks in its model - inflation for instance will always track economic growth (have 8% growth and eventually inflation will hit 8%), meaning some innovative and gamey solutions are needed to avoid stagnation. But it is still easily the most thorough and rewarding political simulator out there, despite its problems. Some countries are more flawed than others, but there are usually workarounds to make every one playable. If you have a high-end PC and a love of politics, get it. Otherwise, this game is not worth your money or frustration.

Disappearing newspapers when loading saved game past August 1 (every single time), allocated units stuck in midair over destination, annoying video lag, etc. No once since I got the steam version have I made it to September. And don't even get me started on the vanishing army bug.

Oh by the way, it now is apparent to me that bugs that occur are actually set in stone from the very beginning of each particular gameplay. As a result, reverting to save game will not only not help to dodge a bug, it may actually bring the bug to manifest itself even sooner.

There is yet another bug which can be triggered by signing a normal peace treaty with a country and attack again sometime down the road; I will not say what it is since it is a serious exploit for cheating.
